U.S. support for the war in Iraq is waning, and the face of the anti-war movement is changing.

On this edition, we take a look at where the anti-war movement is heading. We hear from Iraqis and Iraqi Americans who share their views on the war, and find out how the state of Wisconsin is using its political pull to bring the troops home from Iraq.
